This restaurant is a staple in the Dupont area of D.C. And while it's very popular, the service and food are inconsistent. Our order for a cheeseburger and breakfast took more than 30 minutes. And they were out of bread for toast! The burger was...More

The food was excellent, we visited three times while on our trip, breakfast, lunch and dinner. We were never disappointed. Staff was friendly, we dined outside on the patio, it was a bit cool but they had overhead heat lamps for the guests.
